The local outlet of a popular national chain, Joe's Crab Shack is a Deptford restaurant serving fresh seafood and much much more.

(You can also order a bucket of lobster if you prefer!) Nearly everything else on the menu is generously portioned, too, like Joe's appropriately named "Big Platters," its Steampots with ingredients like crab, lobster, sausage, corn, crawfish, and shrimp, and its 12 ounce ribeye steak. The dessert menu here features sweet treats like Key Lime pie, s'more, and a six-layer chocolate cake.
